Biography

Dr. Callaway is Director of the Human Performance Laboratory and a Principal Academic in Sports Biomechanics and Performance Analysis in the Department of Rehabilitation and Sport Sciences.

With a background in electronics engineering and computing, Andy’s work focuses on the development and creation of novel measurement methods to record, measure, and analyse different aspects of performance, from a clinical, rehabilitation or performance perspective.

Laboratory based assessment of activities is common and needed. Andy’s work develops these to field-based measurements with an applied focus striving to create comprehensive biomechanical profiles to develop best practice in a variety of environments both sporting and clinical.

Research

Current research projects include: - Virtual reality based feedback in Football (InnovateUK funded)

- Player load (Training Magnitude) and injury identification in Badminton (with Matthew Wylde)

- Isometric shoulder stability testing

- Biomechanics of change of direction - Biomechanics in Archery

- Tactical performance in Football
